GRAHAM opens supply chain opportunities on £79.5m Renfrewshire project

GRAHAM is advertising a range of services of interest to small firms as part of its build of a new bridge across the River Clyde at Renfrew.

The £79.5 million project also involves the creation of a 750-metre road connecting into the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland (AMIDS).

Funded by the Glasgow city region city deal, Renfrewshire Council said that its plans will create an ‘attractive’ waterfront area and connect communities to work, health, education, and leisure.

It added that the plans are anticipated to attract up to £230 million in waterfront developments, with the potential to bring more than 2,000 permanent and temporary jobs. GRAHAM has set up its site accommodation either side of the Clyde, providing a base for more than 120 people.

The firm is looking for a range of services and suppliers as construction progresses. All sub-contracts over £10,000 are being advertised on Public Contracts Scotland, with services such as catering, vehicle valeting, and window cleaning also required.

Jim Armour, GRAHAM contracts manager, said, “Now the site accommodation is in place we’re looking for a range of services and supplies and I would encourage local businesses to visit our project website for more information.

“We’re delighted to be delivering this important construction project and are bringing fantastic supply chain opportunities to Renfrewshire and the wider Glasgow city region.”
